The Art of Daniel Callahan – June 2024

Artist Statement

I am largely a self-taught artist, painting for over thirty five years. My participation in many art workshops and involvement in the Needham Art Association have contributed to my knowledge, style and ability.

My aim in painting is to explore and express the mysteries of shape and color that exist in nature. I attempt to capture the unique character of a place which requires patience and keen observation. I think of the concept of “genius loci” which in classical Roman religion was the guardian spirit of a place. This now thought of in art and architecture as the mystical, unique and intangible qualities of atmosphere and character of a place.

A lifelong resident of Needham, I find most of my subjects in places that I explore locally and in occasional travels.
